Congrats on the little one you are preparing to bring into the world! It has been a bit of an interesting "connecting of the dots" that has led me to birth and postpartum work. I feel so thankful to have found my path here. I have been a birth enthusiast since my own birth, almost. I was raised in my mom's home preschool, surrounded by little ones ever since I was a little one. I always loved the kids, but it was really the awe of watching new babies arrive and families grow that intrigued me.
From holding babies at my mom’s preschool, I went on to graduate from UC Santa Barbara, live abroad (twice), manage a non-profit program in San Francisco, and then decide to untie the bow-lines and set sail to circumnavigate our globe. Returning to the Bay Area a bit saltier after 2 years of sailing the world, I finally decided to follow a passion that had been brewing for many years and become a doula.
I completed my DONA International training in 2013 and have been supporting growing families in the Bay Area ever since. I find every stage of this work truly awe inspiring.
My doula philosophy is simple. I do not have my own agenda for your birth. My only goal is to support you in having your own unique birth and postpartum experience. Every birth and baby is incredibly individual, but every mama deserves to be fully informed, respected, supported, loved, and empowered throughout welcoming a baby. With that support can come a truly powerful birth and postpartum experience. I will be your biggest advocate for this profound, life changing event. I value arming my clients with knowledge, confidence, trust, a completely non-judgemental space, and a full community of birth embracers to support you.
